    There is no difference in the terms as you asked it. If you are wondering what the difference is between the Internet and an Intranet, the Internet is the World Wide Web, public and available to everyone. An Intranet is a private and usually secure site normally used within one company or groups of companies under the same corporation. The transmission technology is the same for both. A network is a group of computers linked together, and normally all files are accessible to every computer on the network, with most files posted on a specific drive located in the main server. A network of networks, then, would be several networks connected together. Hope this is the answer to your question.

    None.

    But if you're ever talking about Internet and Intranet then that's a different ball game. Here's the score:

    Definition of intranet - A privately maintained computer network that can be accessed only by authorized persons, especially members or employees of the organization that owns it.

    Internet = the internet

    internet = "INTERconnected NETwork"

    intranet = a private network such as the ones used in banks, hospitals, corporations, government agencies, etc. Only used for internal communication. Internet access is controlled by filters and access control lists; usually.

    Just the basics, it's actually a little bit more complicated than that.

    "wrong question dude it shuld be differnce between Internet and internet

    answr is:- internet is short for internetwork which is a collection of interconnected networks.

    Internet refers to the world's largest internetwork which consists of hundreds of thousands of interconnected networks worldwide.

    "

    The key difference here (if you didn't notice) is a capitol I, and a lowercase i.

    whoever answered with this, is correct ( i didn't look at the name )

    Example: "GET OFF THE FREAKIN' INTERNET, I NEED TO USE THE PHONE!!"
